  1. Hi all, Well here it is. Oviraptor egg from a 30 year old collection located in the United States. Bought first and read posts on here about fakes later. Smart right? I'll attach pictures but my concerns are 1. It isn't pancaked like most ones I see, 2. Texture changes on the surface could be matrix repairs, 3. On broken areas shell thickness is not consistent. I'll add the best pictures I can. Almost looks like it was painted in the last picture. Thoughts on this would be appreciated. Good or bad lol.

    Dinosaur Egg With Shell?

    I have inherited a 3 generation fossil collection from my grandfather. I will start posting pictures based on what I think is the most valuable and interesting. starting with this reptilian looking egg with an iridescent blue reptile shell it's absolutely phenomenal! roughly 3 and a 1/2 by 2 and a 1/2 inches Let me know what you guys think It's so intriguing it seems like it has an energy of its own when you hold it.

    Dinosaur Egg?

    Hey y’all, super curious about this potential egg as I’ve never found one before. Could be just a strange rock but I had to be sure. Apologies for the lack of measurements I misplaced my measuring tape but I can provide better photos as soon as I find it. Dinosaur park formation, steveville AB

    Quick sketch of oviraptorid hatchling

    Just a quick digital sketch of a freshly hatched oviraptorid that I made today. Had to finish it on my last day of my current job, amongst many other things, so it is what it is. I have some spare time before my next job, so I am hoping to do some more serious paleoart in the next weeks!
  5. I see a vertical pupil raptor eye and embryo in the egg shaped, smooth rock. I was looking for geodes, I found this tiny geode, broke it open at home, and the other half broke into pieces - 3 or 4 crumbly. I did this 17 years ago. Now, I have joined a lapidary group, ALMS Alabama, and been to a meeting, and I have had this on my shelf for 17 years. I was thinking it is an ugly geode nodule? But then, yesterday I thought, it looks like an egg, it's insides are multicolored like a fossilized egg? I then go my magnifying glass and I can see an eye, and 3 part skull with divisions line
  6. Hey y'all. I dont have the faintest idea what I have here. Im fairly certain its an egg. And Im fairly certain it's a fossil. Im also fairly certain my friend shouldnt have cut it in half. But if he didn't, I wouldn't be fairly certain its an egg, so..c'est al vie. Any insight, thoughts, questions, or direction would be greatly appreciated, as my recent googling of the phrase 'red fossil egg in missouri' turned up nothing related.
  7. Hello! A local rock shop has a fossil hadrosaur egg for sale that I’m very interested in. I know eggs are some of the most faked fossils out there, so before I spend money [price redacted] I’d like to get some input from experienced collectors whether or not they believe it’s a fake or the real deal. Thank you to all who respond!

    egg fossil? southwestern Baltic Sea

    Found on the beach in village of Niendorf on Lübeck Bay, SW Baltic Sea. The specimen is heavy. Is it an egg fossil, and if so, of what creature in what period? How did the quartz pieces come to be embedded? Thanks to anyone who can help!
  9. Southern Utah - Grand Staircase between the Vermillion and Chocolate cliffs section. The geological period for this location is Upper Triassic. I was out exploring the cliff of a butte (more like a half-butte since one side was cliff and the other gently slopes north into alluvial sand) and came across what seemed like a very flat ancient creek bed, now just a small desert wash. It was strewn with quite large river rocks that did not belong, and were not found outside this sand creek. It was very cool, as this "river" was essentially at the top of the cliff and gently flowing away from
  10. This is for sale on a local auction site.... I get a bit of an off feeling about it and feel like it's some sort of fake (it looks plastic) but it's definitely worth asking the question from those that know about dinosaur eggs. The auction title says it is a million year old Therizinosaur egg fossil - yep, seriously. There is zero provenance, so how the seller knows what family of dinosaurs it belongs to surprises me. Based on the title, the seller knows nothing about it either. Seller admits it was a garage sale find, in the listing there is a page worth of info about dinosau

    It's an egg

  12. Hello, I apologize in advance as I'm sure questions like this come up a lot. I'm thinking about purchasing this dinosaur egg which I believe is from a fairly reputable seller. I've always wanted a real dinosaur egg for my collection, but I just wanted to get some opinions on whether you think this one is real or a fake? Thank you very much for any assistance!
  13. I found this rock and smashed it open while taking a walk at Lake Ontario. What I found inside seems rather interest. It is sort of egg shaped but what got my attention is 3 near parallel lines in the possible pattern of a bird or reptile foot, maybe too. Possibly branching lines like blood vessels or roots? It's not very big, maybe a couple inches in length at most and a good part of it is still embedded in the rock. I don't know if there may be more embedded in the rock. I couldn't identify the other fragments that came off the rock after I broke it open unfortunately. I'd love to hea
  14. Found this interesting rock and it has me scratching my head but it sure looks like some sort of egg or maybe the pit of a large fruit but then again it could be a concretion but I have my doubts about that. Hope these pictures have the clarity needed for good judgement.

    Dinosaur Egg

    We found a few dinosaur eggs located in Utah. Not quite sure on exactly what they were laid by or even if they are fossilized eggs.

    Egg Fossil

    I’m looking to get some info on this. Which I found in central Ohio.
  18. Hi, Newbie here. Wondering if these items are real. The pair are billed as oviraptor eggs. The other is billed as a hadrosaur egg. Thanks very much for sharing your thoughts! Best, Z!

    Help with possible egg

    Found this in the Olcmulgee River shed after lots of rain from up North so I'm in Middle Georgia it's possible it could have come down from further north. Background in last picture is a standard index card for true size comparison

    oviraptor egg prep?

    Hello fossil friends I will be acquiring a clutch described as Elongatoolithidae that came from a collection out of China in the 80s. Short of sending the piece out or acquiring a $1000+ air scribe setup, what can be done as far as getting rid of some of the calcite on top of the eggshell, or better expose the underlying details? I possess a dremel with many different attachments and access to the hardware store for more supplies. I've read that the matrix these are found in can be very hydrophilic so want to avoid turning it to mush. Thanks for any comments
  21. Please take a look of the two eggs with well developed embryos from Ganzhou, Jiangxi Province of China. I was told that the embryos were revealed only because the eggs were broken with bones exposed. These are amazing fossils if they are genuine. Do they look like genuine bones or fabricated ones?
  22. An incomplete skeleton was found alongside with a raptor egg. Does it look like the skeleton is genuine? Would it be the skeleton of an elder hatchling of the same brood? This specimen is from Ganzhou of Jiangxi Province, China.

    Tiny embryo

    Hi any suggestions on this one.
  24. The eggs were from Ganzhou, Jiangxi Province of China. How come the two different types of eggs, two spheroidal and an elongated eggs, are sticking together? Are they genuine eggs or eggs glued together artificially?
  25. We took the family out for a day trip to Big Brook today and among many sharks teeth and squid pens, we found this interesting thing. My first thought was corprolite but it has cracks and structure? Idk any help would be great!
